    YES..
    I love Steve Buscemi. He is such a great actor. He can be funny or downright scary. The series is being directed by Martin Scorsese so you know it will be intense. It is from the writers of the Sopranos, so it will be bloody, raunchy and riveting.
    I don't object to the concept of a deity, but I'm baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance.

    The reviews have been nothing short of stellar:

    Fall TV Preview: Boardwalk Empire Is ... - Google News

    I'm totally pysched! It's history based, and it looks like my husband and I are going to be torn between Dexter and Boardwalk Empire in the time slot.

    It's already saved to my Netflix queue. I don't subscribe to pay channels, but will watch it as soon as it's available for rent.

    I'm looking forward to it as well. Does it start this Sunday (the 19th) or the following (the 26th)?

    Re: Boardwalk Empire on HBO

    Is this going to be a series all season or a special mini-series over several Sundays?

    “Boardwalk Empire,” on HBO, review : The New Yorker

    The series, which will have twelve episodes this year, takes place at a moment of huge change—it’s the end of the war, the beginning of Prohibition, and women are about to gain the right to vote. We’re aware, as we watch the doings in “the world’s playground,” that still more change—the city’s death and its eventual renewal, if you want to call it that—waits far in the future, and we identify with the grabbiness with which people go after opportunity, with the melancholy that seems to suffuse the salt air, and with the jazzy tunes performed by the night-club orchestras.
    Fall TV Preview: Boardwalk Empire Is HBO at Its Finest - E! Online

    You've heard of event films? Well, HBO's Boardwalk Empire is an event series. The pilot was directed by no less a figure than Martin Scorsese and cost a reported $20 million. Steve Buscemi stars as Nucky Thompson, the political boss who ran Atlantic City, N.J., during the Prohibition era and who turned it into an early 20th-century mecca of gin-soaked sin.

    We've watched the first six episodes, and while the pilot didn't totally hook us, we were sold after the first few. This series may require a little patience.
